: that is a good point that jim makes. there is no filter. when i grew up the images were very tightly controlled and you are right with social media, that's all gone now. >> stephanie: -- i don't know if it is a good or bad thing. there were the images of people jumps from the world trade center and that was devastating. >> stephanie: yeah, and that's your point people are like everybody has already seen it >> yes, and you just make a conscious decision that you're not going to cross that line. and that stuff has been readily available, i'm sure jim knows some of the conspiracy theory websites that have been around for a long long time will have some of these graphic images. >> stephanie: speaking of -- speaking of which, i guess al jones will get the award -- it's a pretty low bar, but alex jones yesterday. >> this is a reporter from his website. >> [ inaudible ] is this another false [ inaudible ] civil liberties [ inaudible ]? >> no. next question. >> what was the question? >> stephanie: was this a false depreciation by the government to take away our civil liberties. >>
